So yes, you will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free if you aren't a fan of Windows 10 S. Either way, Lenovo will start selling the Miix 630 sometime around April/March of this year for $799.

Lenovo has unveiled at CES its first convertible laptop in Microsoft's new range of "always-on" Windows computers with LTE mobile connectivity.

Lenovo said the device delivers the "power and productivity of a laptop with the always on, always connected mobility of a smartphone".

Always Connected PCs ship with Windows 10 S out of the box, and the Miix 630 is no different here.

The company didn't provide much detail about the Miix's LTE modem, but we imagine it has the same X16 LTE unit found in Asus' NovaGo and HP's Envy x2. Its display is reportedly covered by a sheet of Corning's Gorilla Glass panel to protect the screen from bumps and scratches.

Despite its small-and-light package, the Miix 630 still manages to pack a Windows Hello-compatible camera and enough battery power for 20 hours of local video playback. There are twin microphones and two 1W speakers. I/O connectivity includes a single USB Type-C port, an SD card reader, and a microphone/headphone jack.

The Lenovo Miix 630 features a detachable 12.3-inch touchscreen, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of SSD storage which can be expanded using the microSD card slot. That has 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Graphics and lightweight gaming are supported by the integrated Adreno 540 GPU.

The imaging department uses a 13-megapixel IR front-facing camera with Windows Hello support and a 5-megapixel rear shooter.

This new ARM-based laptop runs on Window 10 S operating system, which restricts usage of software.

Under the hood, the all new Lenovo Miix 360 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The short of it is 20 hours of use time, up to a month of standby, or about a week of general use, without the need to turn the device off, all built around ARM architecture instead of x86.

Carrying a starting price of $800, the 2-in-1 laptop is slated to launch Q2 2018.
